is coming because there's just going to be -- it will become impossible for president obama to continue to have confidence in him if everybody in washington doesn't, even if the speaker and pelosi do not think he should be fired. partly because -- i think what boehner and pelosi are saying, it's one thing to remove the top guy, but you can't just ignore the rest of the problems. if it's a systemic problem throughout the entire v.a. and shinseki didn't know about it, there are plenty others that did. you can't fire them all. maybe you could, but you have to have some sort of plan in place to replace it. so i would bet that tomorrow is a friday, i bet the secretary will be gone by then. >> around 4:00, 3:30 in. >> yes. >> time for him to go, eric? >> yes. what does it take in d.c. to get fired? all these scandals, the irs, the v.a., we talk about the gsa, remember the guy who was in the bathtub with the -- people just don't get fired. and it's not just president obama's fault, although i think shinseki should go, i'm tired of him saying i still have confidence in it the guy. i disagree, d
